confused by the miracle collar
So, got my new guy a miracle collar to stop the windsucking he's been doing on the gate to the pasture. My boyfriend tried putting it on, and I was told to put it as tightly as it will possibly go. Smoke pinned his ears, and was clearly unhappy, but allowed us to do this. When he would put his head down, it seemed to get so loose to the point of falling off.
We followed the directions that came with the collar, but it just seemed... not right. Anyone have any experience with these collars?
Also, I'm concerned about his ability to eat. It pinches when he stretches his neck out to windsuck, so what about when he stretches his neck out to grab some hay?
Any input from folks who have used these collars would be greatly appreciated.
